Will the first Palestinian elections in 15 years go ahead? | Inside Story


Fourteen Palestinian factions appear to have put aside some of their differences, opening the way for elections to be held.
The agreement includes the main rivals Fatah and Hamas and has been reached after talks in Cairo.
The two sides have been fighting since Hamas won parliamentary elections in 2006 and held power in Gaza Strip a year after.
There have been repeated attempts to hold elections in the past few years and if these go ahead, they will be the first in 15 years.
The parliamentary and presidential votes are now set to take place in May and July.
